I want to use the extender for a chocolate fudge cake mix but I don't want the extender to lighten the color of the batter.Is there a recipe or any way to add cocoa or something to keep the mix a deep dark color??? I love the Chocolate fudge flavor and color but when I have used the extender in the past it turns the batter a light milk chocolate color.

I use the cake mix extender recipe from this site. I replace about 1/4 cup of flour with cocoa powder. I also sometimes replace 1/2 cup of sugar with a small package of dry instant chocolate pudding. And if you have chocolate extract, you can use that in place of the vanilla. I also do a couple of squirts of chocolate syrup into the mixture.

I've used the extender with DH chocolate fudge mix in the past with no problems changing color. Is that the mix you have used?

i add melted semi-sweet chocolate or melted unsweeten chocolate... i am told that this helps keep its moisture... so that is what i do...
